About Great Music

Welcome to Great Music at Saint James


For the past twenty-three years we have been honored to host many of the most distinguished organists from throughout the world. This season we welcome American organists Malcolm Matthews, Joshua Stafford, Isabelle Demers and Alcee Chriss, as well as French organist Jean-Baptiste Robin and Spanish organist Raúl Prieto-Ramírez.

We invite you to experience great organ music played on the David John Falconer Memorial Organ (originally built in 1911 for St. Paul’s Pro-Cathedral, Los Angeles, by Murray M. Harris). Comprising over 5,000 pipes in total, the organ is an important part of Los Angeles musical history and takes its place among the country’s most important and magnificent instruments.

These recitals are offered as a gift to the community free of charge, and we are grateful to the Ahmanson Foundation and our Friends of Great Music for their continuing support.


The semi-professional Choir of Saint James distinguished itself in 1996 as the first American Choir to have sung in performance with the Choir of Westminster Abbey, London. They have since completed four tours of the British Isles and are pleased to offer the Los Angeles community the uniquely Anglican service of Evensong in the style of the great English Cathedrals on the second Sunday of the month at 4:30 PM. Freewill offering.


Patterned after the ever-popular service of Nine Lessons and Carols originating from King’s College, Cambridge, England, the Choir of Saint James offers this service in anticipation of Christmas on 8 December 2019. Freewill offering.
